Got A Wife and Kids in Baltimore, Jack

Dear David Simon: I’ve asked you once and I’ll ask again: Will you marry me?  I finished Season Five tonight. Apart from the fact that I’m still not exactly sure who Marlo Stanfield was, that was the best ride since the Soaps. The Wire, for all its violence, is incredibly character driven. I’m going to miss the gang, the look, the tone, the pacing, the story telling. And the dialogue! Great fucking dialogue: And I quote, “You’re a cunt hair away from an indictment.”

What should I binge-watch next?
